    old people are not glued to their electric phones so are aware of other people around them; they appreciate the warmth of a cheery greeting as you pass by.

    I think that's a lovely thing to do. I always make sure to give eye contact and smile when I'm walking towards an older person but I probably wouldn't say good morning unless they said something first. Saying morning/hi is quite common when you're walking in the country but it probably is a bit unusual to do in the city. I don't think you necessarily need to stop it though, I think it'd probably cheer people up slightly.

    Ah yes I live in the countryside so that probably explains a lot

    I don't know why you think this is unusual. I would greet anyone i pass in just the same way of I were walking along the road (though not in a busy urban area).
